SSFIV FrameDroid : frame data app for Android now live in market

Dragula96 (that's me) has released a handy app for the Android OS phones.
its a pocket sized version of frame data for SSFIV!.
for just $1.29 you can get this off the Android Market Place.
just head on over on your phone and do a search for "SSFIV" and it will show up as SSFIV Framedroid.

thanks for your support!

*UPDATE - I had taken the app off the market for a day so i could remove any copywrighted material on the app, last thing i want is to be banned from the market and not be able to continue bringing updates to this app. IT'S BACK ONLINE with a new interface.

Yun & Yang Officially in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

this is what iplaywinner had to write:
"In a surprise to, well, pretty much no one, Yun and Yang have confirmed to be in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. A location test is currently underway, and beyond the confirmation of the two new characters, there are also reports of gameplay changes. According to a post on SRK, Yun's Super is Genei-Jin and both him and Yang have their target combos from Third Strike. Hakan has also allegedly received some buffs, with him now being able to "stack oil" and even combo into oil off of a standing light kick.

Oichi over at Versus City is also reporting than Zangief's EX Green Hand does not knock down. Also, arguably more surprising is that blocked Blanka Balls now recover half the distance that they used to, which will make it much easier for many characters to punish, not just Balrog and a few others. He also mentions that Juri's Fireballs now "combo naturally" though I'm not entirely sure what that means. Seth's Jumping Fierce Punch has also apparently been nerfed, but it's not clear by how much at this point.

Mortal Kombat Hands-On Impressions; Playstation 3 May Have Exclusive Stage Designed for 3D

Hands-on impressions for Mortal Kombat are surfacing out of the Gamestop Manager's Conference 2010 (our very own Mikeyboy956 was on hand for this event), courtesy of TRMK. Information has also come out of the conference regarding pre-order bonus for the game!

Here's an impression of the general gameplay. After the jump you will find info on the game's (tentative, as it can change) pre-order bonuses. If you want to get some impressions on a few of the characters, visit TRMK for more info and some photos from the event.

According to TRMK, there was apparently talk that the Playstation 3 version might get an exclusive stage made for 3D. It was previously revealed that this game would make use of the stereoscopic 3D that Sony is making a big push for lately.

Microsoft's new patented d-pad technology makes things a little better for playing fighting games

Microsoft is releasing a new wireless controller. With a new "transforming " d-pad which will supposedly be better then the nasty current d-pad. This is good news for those people that still play fighting games on pad. The Co stroller will be released November 9 the.
